1 min read

TLDR: Microsoft and OpenAI have issued a warning about nation-state hackers using AI for cyberattacks. According to a joint report, state-affiliated actors from Russia, North Korea, Iran, and China have been experimenting with artificial intelligence and large language models (LLMs) to enhance their cyber attack operations. While no significant or novel attacks using LLMs have been detected thus far, the report highlights that these actors have been using AI services for various purposes, such as open-source research, translation, coding assistance, and malware development. Microsoft is now working on a set of principles to mitigate the risks associated with the malicious use of AI tools by nation-state threat actors and cybercriminal syndicates.
